We provide regular health assessments in the comfort of your own home. A health assessment is a useful tool to help identify any problems quickly. It is important for you and your family to have regular assessments done to ensure you are safe and healthy.
Typically, a comprehensive health assessment begins with documenting a patient’s history before we start a physical exam. The health history includes learning about our patient’s medical complaints, your current state of health, lifestyle choices, and your family history. Health assessments range in time and scope. If you are having symptoms please let your nurse know. After a record of your health history, we conduct a physical which reviews the patient’s body. A head to toe exam is provided where we cover a range of assessments including:
- Ears, eyes, nose and throat
- Respiratory function
- Cardiac-pulmonary system
- Muscles and joints
- Limbs, shoulders, hips, ankles and feet
The goal of a health assessment is to help our patients understand their current health status, and any improvements that can be made. We want to remind our patients to increase their awareness around their body and not be intimidated to ask questions. A frequent health assessment allows us to track your habits that may be affecting your health or if there are any chronic conditions. Rather than waiting to see your doctor, we provide an efficient alternative right in the comfort of your home.
A health assessment is important as it helps us differentiate a normal condition from an abnormal one, we can then judge if additional medical care is needed. We are also able to provide health assessments for work and insurance needs.
